Bourbon adds subtle toasty-sweet notes to a simple drink made with pink grapefruit juice. Shake this one up, and pat yourself on the back for taking a fresh-squeezed dose of Vitamin C.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
